The inspiration for the songs on this album comes from past and present events that actually did accur in my own personal life. I grew up in The Virden Addition Community in Jackson MS in the early 70s. Most of these songs are a small reflection of my teen-aged past and others are an attempt to deal with a few real life issues in a humorous kind of way. Also, on some of the songs I get a little help from up and coming Rapper Byron (Aka Black Goldie)Broomfield of the rap group Lyrical Legends better known as Mr. Black Goldie. On lead guitar is my good friend,Brent Burleson who I call Bro. Brent. That white boy can play that guitar. I ain't lying. We were just having a little fun in the studio with these songs, and we hope that you get a good laugh out of hearing them.'Cat Eyed James) Was my best friend back in the 70s, C.L. is my only living uncle, And Shirley is a second or third cousin on my daddy's side that really lived up to everything that That was said about her in the song, 'She was a hot mess from Chicago and still lives there as far as I know. To tell you the truth I'll write a song about anything or anybody that has an interesting life style. We were all just crazy kids back then I liked a lot the humorous songs that Jimmie Caster and Johnnie Guitar Watson had out back then and these songs are songs some what like them in subject matter.
